Blank Slate..Blank Mind....







Well my bedroom redo continues at a snail pace...I finally covered the Oval frame I had which I posted couple weeks ago with a nice linen fabric...hung it and my mind continues to go blank..
The project is at a standstill...my mind is conflicted.. what to do next??? Maybe its a side effect of doing too many projects and things at one time...??? I don't know..so I decided to actually post my delema...
The inside of the frame used to have a floral fabric...(I first thought a mirror would be good..but my room had so many mirrors already another mirror would be overkill and it would only reflect the tv...)..I was thinking a nice tapestry to mimic my rug design or a antique lace piece in the middle with my same color scheme of cream, taupe, white, and sepia tones......for a while a small oval ornate mirror frame was in the running which I added a strand of pearls all around its edge....but that also..didn't quite feel right......SO it continues to hang there blank...eventually I'll be shopping somewhere and I'll see the perfect thing...but for now.. its a blank slate...and I move on to other projects and just lay on my bed and stare at my blank frame.... hoping inspiration will
come calling....

Hi Marlene....wondered where you have been:) Rearranging the store is fun, but also so much work....still a good time though. Your frame dilemia....have you thought about hanging it empty and placing another picture inside the empty frame...creating a little more drama for a smaller piece....have you thought about hanging the frame empty and having a small same scale shelf inside for yet another dilemia....what you put on the shelf. Of course, go with the expected and hang a large oval ironstone platter inside....maybe with an oval mirror glued to the platter....hope you have my vision or these will sound crazy....good luck....hope you post the outcome...xxoo jana

How about a mmemory board with a clean linen background and little momentos of the things you love hanging from it. Kinda like all the memory boards that are out there now made from old frames with a cardboard back and neat embellishments added over time. A piece of fabric,an old picture that you love,a piece of tapestry,fabric remnants,old jewelry-all displayed together in a one of a kind art project?...Love Tiina..
